The art of life in Greece
Does your life seem short on choices? A spiritual retreat in Greece is determined to provide you with genuine ones. On a Life Choices holiday, at the Skyros Centre on the island of the same name, you'll be tutored in how to obtain not material wealth but "a sense of purpose larger than one’s own self, a meaningful job that is socially validated and a world... in which [you] feel [you] belong and to which [you] can relate".
The centre’s holistic approach to living and learning, combined with its sublime location, makes it a promising destination for expanding your mind and liberating your creative spirit. As well as in-depth courses and workshops, the two-week programme includes daily yoga classes. Skyros also offers courses in art, music, writing and salsa in Cuba, Thailand, Cambodia and the Isle of Wight.
